We have just returned from a short break at the West Down Guest house in glorious North Devon and I can honestly say we enjoyed every second of our stay. Our hosts, Brenda and Roger could not have been more welcoming. On arrival Brenda greeted us both with a delicious cream tea and we were shown to our beautiful room... More

We have just returned to Suffolk after staying at this Bed & Breakfast (home from home) for the second time and found the hosts (Brenda & Roger) as welcoming as ever. Nothing was too much trouble even my gluten free diet was catered for with no fuss. The location is fantastic, accomodation excellent and the food is delicious. We would... More

Brenda and Roger are more than the perfect hosts in this beautiful accommodation and location. Brenda provides superb breakfast and evening meals and nothing is too much trouble for her. Roger is a wonderfully funny man, always laughing and joking and kept us entertained throughout our 7 day stay. I must compliment them both on their wonderful hospitality and generosity.... More

Great B&B, beautifully clean and great attention to detail. Super breakfast made all the more enjoyable with 'bird watching'. Brenda and Roger excellent 'mine hosts' . Lovely quiet location but easily accessible to the A377 and all routes. Highly recommend.

From the moment we met Brenda and Roger we knew this was the place to be. We were met with coffee and Devon-style scones in glorious sunshine. Our room could not have been better, in a country house overlooking hills with sheep and cattle. All meals were excellent, preceded with drinks and accompanied with wine. Our hosts treated all guests... More

Spotless, relaxing B&B in a beautiful rural location with very friendly and caring hosts. Our second visit with our family (we all fitted in one room which is a great help with young children) and we were looked after very well again. Lovely garden and lots to do within a short drive - attractions and fantastic beaches. Highly recommended.
